Your visit day

Congratulations on your offer of a place at the School of Biochemistry!

Now that you have your offer from us, we would like to welcome you to the school to experience what it is like to be part of our biochemistry community.

Your visit day is an opportunity to ask any questions you may have about studying at Bristol. During your afternoon session with us you will meet lecturers and current undergraduate students who will tell you more about the course, including how our eBiolabs online laboratory manual helps you get the most out of your biochemistry practical classes and tutorials. Our current students will be on hand throughout the day, providing you with the perfect opportunity to ask them about student life and why they chose Bristol.

We will help you to build a clear picture of how we teach, what you will study, and the support you will receive. You will get first-hand experience of our teaching through example research presentations and you will have a tour of our world-class research laboratories and hear about the exciting research that is taking place within the school.

We hope that your visit day will help you confirm that Bristol is the right university for you.

Forthcoming dates

Biochemistry visit days will be held between November 2017 and April 2018.

You will be emailed specific dates when you have received your offer.
